Toomuchloveliness: Macau

Macau Launches their Winter Menu

We recently visited Macau it town to try out their new winter menu! It was my first visit and I absolutely loved the decor and delicious food. Macau is an explosion of flavours. Macau draws on the country’s heritage of Southern Chinese cuisine fused with Portuguese influence from Africa, Latin American and India. You will…

My SUPER HONEST 2019 Cape Town Winter Specials

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you’ll have seen my 2018 post on the Cape Town winter specials. It started like this: The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation is looking like – but a…

Winter Specials at BOCCA

I have also loved the pizzas at BOCCA but as is the Cape Town way we often don’t visit the same restaurant more than a handful of times. We’re a flippant bunch and we happily flock to the new without going back to visit our favourites. Near the end of last year BOCCA changed hands…

Toomuchloveliness: The Chef's Studio

How to Cook with Matt Manning at The Chef’s Studio

Matt Manning is a dear friend of mine. And I am so unbelievably proud of him and Roxanne Manning for launching their very first restaurant. They are both fiercely passionate souls and are now fighting their way up the steep learning curve of running a restaurant. In true Manning style – they didn’t just launch…

Toomuchloveliness: Charango

Charango in Bree Street goes Barbacoa

I last visited Charango a-whole-nother boyfriend ago. And we had a lovely meal but never felt like I needed to go back. So when an invite to Charango popped into my inbox I though… um, that Peruvian place? Sure… could be good. I quickly popped onto their website and found a completely new restaurant! Charango…

Toomuchloveliness: La Tete

La Tete Winter Special

We snuck in a midweek date night at La Tete recently and it was such a lovely evening! What made it even better was the great winter special which really makes these midweek date nights possible! To keep this post super honest I want to let you know that this is our second visit to…

Toomuchloveliness: Seabreeze on Bree Street

Oyster Party at Seabreeze on Bree Street

Seabreeze on Bree Street opened last year and they started with a bang! R10 an oyster during their happy hours of 12pm to 1pm and 5pm to 6pm EVERY single day. I was doubly careful to check this includes Saturdays, which it does! I found this out on the Thursday. Friday I made the booking. Saturday…

Toomuchloveliness: Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street

Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street

I recently visited Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street with one of my besties for a big boozie lunch. We started at 1pm and only left at 5pm because we had made plans for the evening! We would happily have spent more time sitting under the gas heaters drinking great wine and finishing yet another…

Tacos at Door 221

My first introduction to Door 221 was a drunken evening where I spent R250 on french fries. Granted we were all marvelously tipsy and I took it upon my self to buy french fries for the entire table as somehow we had managed to miss dinner. We spent the majority of our evening of Tuning…

Five reasons to join Tuning the Vine and A Giveaway!

Tuning the Vine is currently my favourite street party equivalent going on in town! I find first Thursday, third Thursday and any other damn Thursday over run with very cool people and desperately low on wine! Tuning the Vine is a monthly event showcasing some really great wines and fantastic venues. It runs along Bree…
